Having updated to Android 12 possibly the worst mistake I made for this phone. But why do Asus continue to release softwares that are absolute trash? My phone feels like a piece of SHI*!!
Issues encountered so far:
1. Battery life: Definitely DECREASED. Used to get 1.5 Hours SOT from 100% to 99%, now getting barely 40 minutes on Android 12. 100% to 90% gave me 3 Hours SOT all the time, now, 1 hour 45 mins with light usage!! Battery has degraded significantly!!
2. Phone Temperature: Increased slightly. Not a good sign of course as phone is warm on Android 11 anyway. Now, even in idle, it sits 5 degrees Celsius higher than it did on Android 11
3. Speaker quality: The same as android 11, very good, no change needed. All good with speakers.
4. UI: New UI looks fresh & clean, but, gets laggy at times, especially when exiting an app & going to app drawer, shows random flicker on screen. Themes are inconsistent too as a weird green tint appears in sub menus.
5. Bluetooth headset volume has been decreased SIGNIFICANTLY. Bluetooth earphones no longer loud like they used to be. Max volume on Android 12 with Bluetooth earphones feels like 50% volume on Android 11
I will edit this post when I notice more issues/bugs.

Asus, you rushed this update, as you rush everything & it really shows. It's probably around 60% complete. Fix the damn battery drain & other issues I've mentioned above. This update should not have been released so early.
If anyone else has encountered issues, please mention them on here.

Other bug is that even than i make the Cpu and Gpu on high frequency and high temperature the fps and performance go down when i get 46 degrees.....

My phone was about a week old when I updated so i have no solid reference to compare a11 and a12, however I noticed an issue with the quick settings scaling where the top most settings have weird hitboxes making the brightness slider completely unusable. I've tried restarting my device but the problem persists.

I update my ROG Phone 5 8/128 to Android 12, and now I don't have Aura Lighting menu, instead I have PLED menu (PLED available for ultimate version). I don't know if I have to uninstall update or waiting for next update to be fixed.
